"I stood in the election this year because I genuinely wanted to make positive change. I genuinely believe that when the student movement comes together there are no limits to what we can achieve. Strath Union needs to run more grassroots campaigns with students at their heart. Together we need to advance the bread and butter issues such as mental health support, housing costs and financial hardship. If you're interested in being involved, get in touch! Always remember, there is power in a union!"
